Question

 
is this shirk? i was messing around and i picked up an object and said "object please let me get....." is this shirk? i said this as a joke and didnt know it was wrong and after i said it, i realised that it couldve been shirk. it was by accident in the sense that i was saying it not realising what it meant until after i had said it. so can you tell me if this is shirk and please advise me in what to do because im very afraid that i have sinned badly. jazakallah
 
 
Answer
 
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.
There is no Shirk [associating partners to Allah] in what you said; rather, it is a kind of vain talk that a reasonable person does not do.
 
Allah Knows best.
